Marte clears waivers, outrighted to Columbus

You can breathe easy. Andy Marte isn’t going anywhere. His memorable tenure with the Tribe continues.

Marte cleared waivers today, so the Indians were able to outright him to Triple-A Columbus. He’ll be back in camp tomorrow as a non-roster invitee.

Wes Hodges is expected to get the bulk of the starts at third base with the Clippers, so you can expect Marte to see time at third, first and at DH.

You can’t help but wonder if Marte might have snuck through waivers a year ago. Obviously, the Indians didn’t think so.

In any event, three years after the Indians touted Andy Marte as their third baseman of the future, they couldn’t even give him away.

Ooo goody… Lucky us…

I, for one, am happy to see him back.
We need depth at 3rd base and maybe another year of AAA is what he needs.
What can it hurt?

This doesn’t change anything, in that affliction t-shirts are still awful.

Great story over again. Thank you!
